Prizm Autographs (2) – Corey Seager, Yorman Rodriguez

What's Buzz-worthy: This one's in the big sale and with two autographs in every box it's worth a definite look. Why? Aaron Judge, Kris Bryant, Corey Seager and Mookie Betts are just sone of the young stars on the checklist and there are plenty of rare and colorful parallels for all of them as well as many others. This box included Seager, who I've seemed to pull often so I wasn't unhappy with my box at its sale price. You get a pretty strong chunk of inserts and parallels in these boxes -- more than one per pack -- and there is good dollar potential with parallels. The prospects and rookies are all signed on-card, while a number of MLB veterans can be found as signers here, too. Prizm Perennial Draft Picks perhaps gets more attention but this one is arguably one of the best Panini Prizm sets ever made with the auto lineup alone -- again, two per box -- helping fuel that in my mind.
